Finding it harder to hire legal talent?

You’re not alone.

A new national survey from MHA has revealed that 85% of UK law firms are planning to increase staff numbers in 2022, with 93% not currently planning to make any staff reductions. That means competition is increasingly fierce.

We’re already seeing staff bidding wars and average salaries rising by at least 5% amidst attempts to attract talent and stand up against inflation.

As the cost per hire rises significantly in current conditions, it’s critical to maximise your most cost effective hiring channel. Those who apply directly to your firm. 

But that’s easier said than done, isn’t it?

Consider this from the perspective of the candidate. Every job board is saturated with agency job posts, often representing the same client and opportunity multiple times over. Not only does this make the job search process deeply unappealing for talent, it’s increasingly difficult to navigate. 

That’s where Job Legal Board comes in. We’ve created the world’s first platform for legal jobs that separates internal opportunities from those advertised through agency – putting the power of advertising and hiring top legal talent back into the hands of legal firms and the people who are looking to work there.

We’ve created a space specifically for the legal industry, bridging the gap between UK law firms and the best legal professionals up and down the country.

For legal professionals, we provide direct access to firms and opportunities without the mystery that often comes with engaging a recruitment agency. Designed to support career paths and not simply one off roles, users can carefully curate tailored searches to keep track of which firms are hiring, and when.

Whether you’re hiring legal talent or looking for your next opportunity – Job Legal Board is here to help
